Fingal County Council

Fingal CC Appoints Inspex

Fingal County Council has outsourced inspections of private rented properties and appointed the Inspex Team in the Fingal Area.

The current minimum standards for rented accommodation are set out in the Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2017.  These regulations specify the requirements in relation to a range of matters including structural repair, sanitary facilities, heating, ventilation, lighting, fire safety as well as the safety of gas and electrical supply.

All landlords have a legal obligation to ensure that their rented properties comply with these Regulations whether part of a housing payment scheme or not.

Responsibility for enforcement of the Regulations is with the Local Authorities supported by funding from DECLG and in part from the proceeds of tenancy registration fees collected by RTB.

If the Government's 2021 25% annual inspection target is to be achieved, Local Authorities, must outsource this to an inspection team with the mobile technology that supports its objectives.

Inspex Ltd. is carrying out inspections of HAP properties in the North Dublin Area over the coming weeks and will be making contact with Landlords in this regard.
